    Program Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was pretty straight forward - started with a phone screen and then an in-person interview, followed by two interviews with company in which they were placing me. I think that the only reason why I advanced was because I knew someone in the company where I was placed.
